Hi all, When I went onto the internet today, my home page took quite a while to load. I noticed at the bottom 'Waiting for.....' one of the items I saw was msn portal.112.2o7.net. This one seems to take longest, but I've not noticed these items before. Are they safe? Any ideas please?
Cheers

Thanks for that link, calimanco, you always come up trumps. Didn't understand all of what I read, not being that savvy,for instance, what does 'sticky' mean?, but I'm not now concerned that it's spyware.
Yo're a star.
